small amount of yarn
any size hook
--This pattern makes a fairly small square. Using a size "I" hook and worsted yarn, I got a 3 inch square.
--The pattern is named for the Pennsylvania Dutch Rosette Cookies my gramma makes. (yum!) If you don't know what a rosette cookie is, it's like a kind of a miniature, thinner funnel cake. They're rosette shaped (surprise ;-)) and they're crispy, airy and very quick to disappear--probably why the recipe makes about 200.
--Because of the looks of a half double crochet, either side could be used as the front.
